Apple Tarte Tatin

Apple Tarte Tatin

Tarte Tatin is a french puff pastry dessert in which apples are caramelised in butter and sugar before the tart is baked upside down. 

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. 

  • Peel, core and slice 4-6 apples into chunky slices. Place a small to medium sized oven-proof frying pan over a medium-low heat. Melt 100g butter and add ½ tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp ground clove, a pinch of nutmeg and the sliced apples and mix until it all is incorporated. 

  • Add half a cup of brown sugar, and a few drops of lemon juice and sauté until the apples start to caramelise. 

  • Remove from the heat, gently place a sheet of puff pastry onto the apples. Tuck the pastry around the frying pan. 

  • Brush the pastry with a beaten egg (optional) and bake for 35-40 minutes till the pastry is golden brown and crispy. 

  • Remove from the oven, allow to cool and gently flip onto a serving plate. Serve with crème anglaise, fresh cream, yogurt or coco yogurt. 



You can substitute the apples for many other fruits. We like pears, plums, nectarines, rhubarb and  berries.
